The Competent Authority Regulating Offshore Oil Operations in the Black Sea – ACROPO has open doors for investors now, “present here not to create restrictions but to help them”, said Gabriela Dan-Unterseth, head of ACROPO, at the 8th annual edition of Spring Cocktail, a concept event organized by Energynomics.
Gabriela Dan-Unterseth left Romania 21 years ago to complete her studies in France, and she recently returned to Romania, being appointed by Prime Minister Florin Cîțu as head of ACROPO. “I left Bucharest 21 years ago for a few months, which turned into years, with an Erasmus grant at the University of Montpellier in France. Now I have French and Romanian citizenship. I graduated from college in Montpellier, with a doctorate in Geotechnical, becoming a specialist in geo-hazards,” she said.
“The geo-hazards are any movement that may occur in the marine underlayer, with an impact on infrastructure. The companies want all project development environments to be safe and that’s what the ACROPO is doing. We aim to evaluate the documentation of project owners and we are here to help them. We know that 2021 comes with short deadlines and investors want to quickly submit projects, and we are here with open doors. We want to see the gas industry developing; Romania is a rich country, has natural gas, but also wind resources, and I would like to see more wind projects developing in the offshore sector.”
This conference Spring Cocktail 2021 was organized by Energynomics, with the support of our partners: AON România, Automobile Bavaria, Electrica Furnizare, Hidroelectrica, ING Bank România, OMV Petrom, PeWeTe, Photomate, Siemens.
